Whether worn short or long or made of silk or lace, when done right gloves can be a great touch to your wedding ensemble, especially in the fall and winter. But with summer fast approaching we thought it would be fun to think about how to incorporate one of the many appropriate applications for this classic trend into your special (warm-weather) day. Try a delicately laced or shear wrist-length pair perhaps?
For centuries, fashionable women have donned gloves. It's said that Queen Elizabeth I had more than 2,000 pairs! Also, Jacqueline Kennedy - the epitome of style, elegance and grace - wore a wrist-length pair for her nuptials to John F. Kennedy on September 12, 1953 at St. Mary's Church in Newport! And it's not uncommon to see Victoria Beckham step out in dramatic fashion sporting both long and short gloves.
The trend that began centuries ago and has undergone several revisions and stylistic revolutions over the years is finding its way back into the wedding zeitgeist and we here at Raina Dawn Events just love how some brides are choosing to incorporate them into their joyous day.
